Updates: RAF Typhoons at Exercise Bersama Lima

The Royal Air Force has been following 6 Sqn's activities in Malaysia for Bersama Lima. Late last month they covered the deployment of the squadron's Tranche 2 Typhoons (Typhoon FGR.4 in RAF parlance) to Butterworth, Malaysia, with the 7000-mile flight marking the Typhoon's longest ever deployment so far, as well as being the Tranche 2's inaugural overseas exercise.

And yesterday, the RAF has posted an update of the squadron's activities at Bersama Lima, and the tropical conditions they face, during the exercise. 6 Squadron has so far flown sorties alongside F/A-18, Mig-29, F-5 and F-16 aircraft from the other 4 FPDA nations, and are now preparing for the final stage of the exercise where all participating air forces will fly missions within a complex scenario.
